Question email spam and now "audio" spam

In addition to the huge amount of email spam I get almost immediately after I go to the Quilting Board Digest each day, I am now getting "audio" spam. After I'm in the Board for a few minutes, these two "baby voiced" women start gabbing about beauty products with a pounding musical background. I can't turn it off -- it doesn't show up anywhere on my desktop, or on any of my toolbars. The only way I can get rid of it is to leave the Quilting Board.

Can anything be done about this? Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

I don't know the answer to your audio spam, but I know I opted out of emails from Internet Brands Company, by doing the following:

Go to malwarebytes.com and download their free program. It might get rid of your problem. Works great if you run it every week or so to check for new problem programs. My computer repair person turned me on to this one.

It just happened to me as well. I clicked on a link and suddenly the two woman are talking about "style" of which I have none. It's more then annoying since there is no link where you can close it.

I find I'm getting voice over interference while watching some tutorial videos. Then I just have to give up on the tutes.
